. testimony earlier today from former cia director general david interests behind closed doors on capitol hill. according to lawmakers who were present, general petraeus insisted during two separate hearings today, on the topic of libya and the terror attack there that killed four americans, that he was clear from the very start that it was a terrorist attack. however, after the cia prepared talking points, they were vetted or at least pass on to several agencies. the line concluding that al qaeda was responsible for this act was taken out of the final version that we believe was ultimately given to the u.n. ambassador, susan rice. why was that done? who did this? catherine herridge is live on capitol hill. reporter: that's right. congressional horses tell fox news that there were changes to the cia talking points and that language of al qaeda affiliated individuals was replace -- replaced, which have the impact of minimizing or downplaying the role of al qaeda and another group, al sharia come on the consulate on 9/11. there was also testimony this week that the intelligence community to thos

to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. earlier today, general david petraeus said that the cia talking points meant for the susan rice appearance recentlyally contain the information that there was evidence of al qaeda's elements involved in this attack. but it appears as if those talking points were altered by the white house or somebody close to the white house to remove any reference to al qaeda's involvement in the attacks. we have yet to discover who has changed the talking points to make the president look for favorable and mislead you, by falsely labeling the 9/11 attacks over spontaneous mob over the video. petraeus has no idea what was provided to rice or who was the author of the talking points that she used that, he had no idea she was going on the talk shows until the white house announced it one or two days before. now, the looming question is, in this coverup, who did it? now, earlier, fox's own katherineererridge explained where the talking points went once they left the cia. >> what we are told about the talking points is that it went through an inter-agency review, including
at the other intelligence? of course, he is the head of the cia. should the head of -- the director of national intelligence, he has access to the intelligence. they all had access to the intelligence, but this is the key, martha, and i want to hear representative king deny it, those talking points were signed off on by petraeus and by clapper. does she not have a right to rely on -- >> congressman king, very quickly on this. >> well, the fact is that when general clapper and general petraeus signed off on those talking points, it had different language in them. when they went over to the administration, we don't know whether it was the white house, the national security council, the justice department or the defense department, that language was changed. that was not the language sent over by the intelligence community. >> they signed off on -- >> gentlemen -- >> now, wait a minute. they signed off on those talking points. >> you made the point. you made the point. >> i had no choice. i had no choice at that stage. >> i want to move on to the other issues with david petraeus. he, again, was gi

: thank you, bill. the former cia director arrived here on capitol hill an hour and 20 minutes ago and a source close to the general told fox news the expectation he will tell the house intelligence and senate intelligence committees he too believed it was terrorism within 20 four hours of the attack. active link to al qaeda and ansar al-sharia to wanted to establish a islamic state in eastern libya. the source told fox news they expect the general to bring with him the original talking points put together by the cia. those talking points had input from other intelligence agencies as well as the office of the director of national intelligence and that petraeus apparently did not know they would be provided to u.n. ambassador susan rice. he does not know who the author of the final version was and these talking points would be uses as the basis for the statements on sunday talk shows on september 16th that this was spontaneous event and linked to the anti-islam video. lawmakers said they wanted to stay very focused on the attack itself and not the former director's personal problems
, about the the cia annex had taken a couple of libyan militia members prisoner and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back, so it's still being vetted. >> so i want to bring in suzanne kelli in washington, and, first of all, tell us a little bit about this video that we're seeing. the fbi so far is determined that security has not been compromised. the agents have interviewed petraeus. what does it say here when you have this woman talking about the cia's investigation into benghazi very publicly? >> well, and you heard for yourself on that piece of video, suzanne. this information hasn't been vetted. is this really something that should appropriately be put out in the public arena in the way that it was? that gets to the very nature of why this relationship was really so messy and so complicated and in the end really inappropriate, but, first of all, i want to say that in temz of what she said about libya and the cia taking prisoners there, this is something that the agency, of course, adamantly denies doing, but the issue
. bill: right on. great weekend. martha: "happening now" starts right now. former cia director david petraeus testifying before committees on capitol hill. he's answering questions that lawmakers have about the deadly terror attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. four americans murdered during that assault on september 11th including our ambassador. at a closed door hearing, it's happening just a week after the general admitted having an extramarital affair and stepped down as cia director. that is not the focus of today's hearing, the affair. today he's answering questions about what the administration knew about the attack and when they knew it. we'll have much more on his testimony in a moment. brand-new stories and breaking news. jon: a major meeting at the white house, president obama and congressional leaders starting to talk about how to avoid billions of dollars in tax increases and spending cuts, set to go into effect january 1st. the maker of twinkies, ding dongs and wonder bread closing down. how super storm sandy happened, what we can learn from the disaster, it's all "ha
by the cia were different from the ones that were finally put out. as far as general petraeus, his testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack, terrorists involved from the start. my questions had a very different recollection of that, clear impression we were given is that the overwhelming amount of evidence is that it was -- rose out of a spontaneous demonstration and it was not a terrorist attack and pointed out the following week when matt olson said it was a terrorist attack and it made headlines because before then, the administration was saying it was not terrorists. it was very cordial, as you will. we all thanked him for his service. i think he has a different impression of the impressions he left on september 14th. >> mr. chairman, can you tell us whether or not his affair or security surrounding his affair came up at all? >> only in -- one question he was asked at the start, did that have any impact on his testimony. he said no. >> how are the talking points different? >> the original talking points were with much more specific about --
of who changed the c.i.a. talking points on the libya attack deepens today as the white house says no one there made the controversial changes. according to sources on capitol hill, former c.i.a. director david petraeus said the original c.i.a. memo was al-qaeda linked terror attack, but that al-qaeda part was excised in favor of a reference to extremist organizations. so who made that change? the white house today said it only made one edit to the talking points which was to call the benghazi site. they told reporters, quote, we were provided with points by the intelligence community that represented their assessment. the only edit made by the white house was the factual edit about how to refer to the facility. democrats say this explains why u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice said after the attack that it was a mob protesting and anti-muslim video and not a terror strike but republicans contend the obama administration wanted to downplay terrorism from the start. >> the issue is from what was released from c.i.a. headquarters on friday afternoon in an unclassified memo to the point
